I believe he had this charity in place before the VIP packages went up. He told me he didn't want to tell people until now.
What would be the purpose of holding out until now? If it was initially a charity effort, wouldn't he have raised more by actually calling it a charity effort when it was announced? Or was it just an attempt for controversy?

Give the guy a break. I mean look at Justin Beiber's VIP packages, and then tell me Kellins ripping people off.
JB is actually talented though

Bieber is a platinum selling artist that sells out arenas. Kellin is not.

Plus he's a solo artist, Kellin's just a member of a band.

I don't believe for a second that this was in the works the entire time. Nice attempt at saving face.

Wouldn't announcing that this involved a cancer patient at the time taken in a lot more money, plus also inspire an opposite reaction.

What a tool. If it was for charity, say it from the start. Clearly you're just doing this to try to make yourself seem less of a money grabbing whore. Too late and now you will probably play the victim card.

People actually bought these? I guess there are a lot of Kellin fan girls with rich parents.

It's ridiculous he had to do this to save face but it's also awesome that it goes to a good cause now.

pretty much this

Somehow I doubt he did this to save face..seeing as it's obviously too late for that. But oh well. Regardless, would you people rather he never announced this and took the money for himself?
Honestly think people are over-reacting about this, I've met Kellin and he seems like a real nice guy. Maybe made a mistake. But eh. Just my two cents.

I kind of doubt Rise would let him spend $10,000 just to recover from a Twitter comment. Just sayin'.

If it was $10,000 that was originally going to go in his pocket they would. Just depends on whether or not saving face means that much to him I suppose

Didn't he say in his initial reaction post that he has feed his family in anyway he can? That sure sounds like this wasn't in place before the package launched.
